Seek peace and pursue it.
1 Peter 3:11
Christians are positioned in Christ immediately but must proceed with Him incrementally. Do you live in the pursuit of true peace? Two components make up the pursuit of peace. The first component is the reception. The Apostle Paul writes “What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me” (Phil 4:9a). We must learn the content of our faith. The second component is the repetition. Paul says, “Practice these things” (Phil. 4:9b). We must practice the conduct of our faith. “Work out your own salvation with fear…for it is God who works in you” (Phil. 2:12b-13). “And the God of peace will be with you” (Phil. 4:9c).
Pray to pursue peace with purpose.
